Anyone Raise Live Food?

Do any of you raise your own food, such as shrimp? I found some Triops shrimp eggs in a pet store, and Tibor and I hatched them out of curiosity. They get to be a fair size and are pretty easy to keep. We weren't sure how his fish would react to them, but when he dropped one into his 55 gallon tank, there was a frenzy! It was ripped apart and devoured in seconds. These guys are pretty easy to hatch, all they require is distilled water. We were thinking they would make a great live food source for large clowns.
